Citation analysis at the click of a button

Are you keen to showcase the academic impact of your publications, to help your users make more informed decisions about what to read, and to enable them to get a better understanding of where an article fits into a field?

For indexing partners, Dimensions provides free, colourful badges that can be easily embedded into any article page to enable readers to see the citations a publication has received. If you are currently not a ReadCube Discovery indexing partner, you may sign up here.

Clicking on the badges takes you to the Dimensions details page for the article – where you can see a summary of how many citations there are, as well more advanced metrics such as the Field Citation Ratio, the number of recent citations, and the Relative Citation Ratio.

Further tabs show more detail on the citing articles, a graph of citations over time and which research categories the citing articles belong to. Users can click through to explore these articles in the free version of Dimensions.

The badges update in real time, enabling authors to monitor the growing impact of their work and that of others in their field. This information can be useful for:

  • Demonstrating influence to funders or management
  • Identifying new potential collaborators
  • Deciding what to read and discovering new related literature
  • Monitoring disciplinary trends
